Universe of Water Particles in the Tank, Transcending Boundaries

Public description: An enormous waterfall cascades down the interior of the Tank, transcending boundaries and influencing other artworks. Water is represented by a continuum of numerous water particles. The interaction between the particles is calculated and then lines are drawn in relation to the behavior of the water particles. The lines are “flattened” using what teamLab considers to be ultrasubjective space. When people stand on or touch the waterfall, they obstruct the flow of water like a rock, and the flow of water changes. The flow of water continues to transform due to the interaction of people. Previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.
